Because the Academic left can't leave well enough alone:

I know right-wingers in general love to rag on academics for the overall prevailing leftist atmosphere (which does exist, not denying that), but damn, given that the right more or less dominates the business and political worlds, you'd think they'd act just a little less victimized over it...

[I]So your sister's friends should go to jail. So what.[/I]

So focus on that. Write some op-eds, have FoxNews run a few stories, pass a few bills about it. Give it more than lip service.

Of course, you, and I, and everyone in America knows that if certain laws (mostly invoving drugs) were enforced equally and without regards to where you live and what you look like, said laws would cease to exist in about 2 seconds.

Very, very few people have the experience of living in this society as different races. Everyone only has their own perspective to relate to. Academia (in it's own little misguided way) tries to get people to see and relate to other people's persepectives. It doesn't usually work, but that doesn't mean it's not worth a shot, and it certainly doesn't mean that people should think they know all the answers without giving it a shot.

I guess we only allow certain types of indoctrination. Mindless patriotism and worship = Good. Realizing that not everyone in the world is you = bad.

The best you could come up with was a runaway court decision by the most left-wing court in the country? God even liberal Democrats thought the decision was ridiculous. Furthermore, trying to relate the Pledge of Allegiance (something nobody is forced to do, incidentally) with government sponsored racism is beyond silly...



"I'm going to fill a dark awful basement with radioactive cockroaches. Yep. Big nasty ones like skateboards on legs, that go click-click-click when they walk. And maybe poisonous. I'm going to starve them for a week.

Then I'm going to catch all the coercive priss-spigots in the world, the ones that want to ban second-hand smoke and dwarf-tossing and beer. I'll smear the rascals with bacon fat, so the roaches won't know what they're eating, as otherwise they might not.

Then I'm going to toss all those greased busybodies into the basement. And whoop. And dance. Ha."

I think SPF's point was that government indoctrination DOES occur, and is accepted, and even embraced by the fine, fine, folks at Fox "News".

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Since the cow was born in 97, and Canada's mad cow scare is over--it seems fairly safe to say this won't happen from Canada again. We (USA) still should have checked more cows, etc. etc.
